New Georgian Airlines FLY GEORGIA will begin operating in the first half of August. It brought the first AIRBUS airliner to Georgia on Saturday.
The aircraft made in 2009 landed at Tbilisi airport on July 28 morning. It will be ready to make the first flight to Batumi in a few days.
New comfortable AIRBUS has a modern design and detail-oriented service.
“It’s a great day for the new company and the Georgian people,” FLY GEORGIA director general John Kolfa said.
